After John had pried my hands from the entrance of the Sloth Factory, we waved a slow, three fingered salute to our friends and boarded a bus to our final destination: Puerto Viejo.
Folks, the day that we have both been waiting for since this trip was first envisioned finally arrived today. We visited the Sloth Sanctuary. We met the sloths!!!
